    A Scalable and Flexible Platform for Delivering Holistic, Accurate, Secure and Timely Data to your Infrastructure

    With continuous change increasingly driving businesses to become more agile, time is money and having access to critical business information at the right time is key to maintaining competitive advantage. For example, in the financial industry, enabling improved customer satisfaction through scalable self-service online banking portals is critical for competitive differentiation. However, at the heart of this requirement is the need for a single, consistent and accurate view of customer and account information across all financial products, in real-time.

    To support such dynamic environments, enterprises are increasingly pressurizing IT to deliver holistic and accurate business critical information at the speed of the business, be it batch, near real-time or real-time. Technologies such as EAI and EII traditionally thought of as the underpinnings of an SOA, have fallen short of providing such flexibility in data latency and volumes. In this session we will discuss the data services platform, a flexible technology that enables the scalable access, integration and right-time delivery of business critical information throughout the enterprise and beyond corporate firewalls. Data services maximize the business value of right-time information for driving competitive advantage, lowered risk and cost-effective project implementations.
